"Here comes the Bride and Groom"

Hi there, craig's friend was the photographer at our wedding {he is a professional , with his own studio, and does fantastic portraits!! and weddings} and has given us the cd rom to choose which photos we would like, so I slipped a couple in for you to see.
I am bursting to get card making now that I have time on my hands after the wedding , honeymoon and Christmas, so I hope my mojo will be there????

Kissy, kissy!!!!!!!! {lol}

This photo was taken at the hotel we had our wedding reception. I just couldn't resist getting a picture with the gorgeous santa claus!!! :)
My dress got a bit dirty on the train with the outside photos, so he will be able to erase out the dirt {thank goodness} for our album :)
Hugzzzzz & smiles xx

Here I am, relaxing in our hotel, {The Waldorf} , what an amazing hotel!!!!!
This is me outside Tiffany's,

showing off my little purchase of a sterling silver bracelet.

Bloomingdales!!!!! what an amazing store!!! so good, I went back a second time {lol}.
We had an amazing time, helicopter ride at night over Manhattan, went up to the top of Empire state building, though we couldn't get out on the viewing deck, as it was thick with ice.

Hi there, this is a card I prepared before I got married, as I knew I would be so busy :)
Im still soooo excited!!!! and only a few days until we fly off to the BIG APPLE!!!!
Well as you know , this is Tilda, my friend bought loads of them and kindly let me stamp out loads of images :) The bench is a separate stamp, and I water coloured it using my tombow markers, then Tilda eating her icecream, coloured and cut out to stick on the bench, {wouldn't you think it was all one stamp?? very effective I thought}. The base card is made from bazzil and some MM paper scalloped and finished with polka dot ribbon and 2 flower epoxy stickers.
I might get another card made before I head off, but if I dont, I shall catch up when I get back.

Have a fab weekend!! xx
